Dating a fellow grad student
I can give you a good idea of what I would LIKE to do after grad school, but there are no guarantees and it scares the crap out of me. Unless we are fortunate enough to be in grad school because our current employer encouraged/paid for us to receive a graduate degree, we probably don’t know and the uncertainty eats at us since we are already thousands of dollars in debt.You aren’t us, so please don’t worry about our futures.As for people - joining groups and clubs is an excellent thing to do. My grad school actually hosts speed dating sessions.You meet people with similar interests, and if you don't end up with a girlfriend/boyfriend, at least you'll have fun doing things you like with new friends. A friend of mine met her fiancée at one of those events! He's not in grad school, but is extremely supportive and understanding of the demands I have.Please RSVP and submit anonymous questions and suggested topics here.I'm a Phd student in a fairly good Engineering program, and for the last several years, I have been single.
” Grad students are especially good at telling you their specific area and level of study, because dang-it, we are NOT undergraduate students.
I just find it hard to go out and even meet other people, let alone single women who would potentially like to go out with me. I TA'd a class and one of the students asked me out the class was finished.
